Hello again, lovely readers! I've had a nice, long break for the holidays, but I'm glad to get back to blogging! I have a really fun project to share with you guys that started out with this Seinfeld-worthy 80s/90s coat I bought from a thrift store:

On top of that, Missouri gets really windy in the winter, so I need properly warm winter gear. Trousers are always a go-to choice for that, and to dress these up I added a matching vest.

I've finished another ensemble on my winter sewing list! I based this suit on illustrations from mid-1930s magazines I have. They commonly have sets of a dress or skirt with a boxy, hip-length swing jacket. I rather like the versatility pieces like this bring to my wardrobe. I have a lot of navy and red, so now I have a couple more pieces I can mix and match with them. Hurray for versatility!

I'm starting a new post series I hope you guys will enjoy: the Traditional Fashion Highlight!
I don't know about you, but as a somewhat rootless American I really enjoy looking at traditional fashions of other cultures. While many Americans are still connected to their immigrant or Native roots, many of us have lost these connections over the generations and no longer have a "traditional" clothing we feel comfortable claiming.
